Our Christina Zoe Kravitz sat down and talked Divergent and more with Allure.
The 25-year-old daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet has entered the family business. This month Kravitz appears in Divergent, the first film based on the wildly popular Veronica Roth trilogy of young-adult novels, and next year she’s in for an apocalyptic road trip in Mad Max: Fury Road. But she is more than the sum of her parents:
Tell us about your character in Divergent. “She kind of has foot-in-mouth syndrome. She says whatever comes to mind.”
Are you at all like that? “Yes. I will always play the obnoxious girl.”
Are you attracted to action movies? “When I think of girls in superhero films, I think of girls that I don’t look like. But that’s changing a bit, which is awesome. And they’re really fun to make, honestly.”
You told Jimmy Fallon that your father behaves like a Jewish mother. Still the case? “Yeah, it is. He’s very proud and very excited whenever I do anything. He takes pictures and asks questions. It’s very sweet.”
For your band, how did you come up with the name Lolawolf? “It’s my brother’s and sister’s names put together. They’re 4 and 5.”
And your music? “It’s turned out to be some kind of 80s pop.”
How would you describe your style? “I’m into a 70s feel right now. I’ve been wearing a lot of blues, bell-bottoms, sweatshirts, and stuff, kind of like Jodie Foster in Freaky Friday. I go to a lot of vintage stores, a lot of flea markets. I love finding one-of-a-kind treasures.”
Do you have any of your dad’s boas from the 80s? “Yeah, I do. They’re beautiful. They’re all in my apartment.”
You’ve been linked romantically to Drake. You’ve dated Penn Badgley, and Michael Fassbender before that. Is it odd not being able to go on a date without the world knowing? “Yeah. I don’t like it. It’s bizarre to me that people spend so much time talking about other people they don’t even know. There’s a lot more stuff to pay attention to rather than who I’m going to dinner with.”
You can see Zoe as Christina in Divergent on March 21st.
